«Cuando una persona pecare e hiciere prevaricación contra Jehová, y negare a su prójimo lo encomendado o dejado en su mano, o bien robaré o calumniare a su prójimo». Levítico 6:2 . .
De manera significativa, el pecado contra los hombres, en última instancia, es contra Dios. . .
El daño a otros es un daño hecho a Dios. El v.2 dice: «hiciere prevaricación contra Jehová». De modo que, el pecado quebranta ambas tablas de la ley (Santiago 2:10). El Salmo 51 es un ejemplo clásico de este principio. El pecado de David fue contra distintas personas; sin embargo, confesó que pecó solo contra Dios (Salmo 51:4). -Biblia Herencia Reformada. . .

Men of the Rock! What better way to decompress and get built up from that midweek-hump...than at Men's Prayer & Bible Study? Come join us TONIGHT as we gather together to hear God speak a word! See you tonight!
Good Morning! We would like to share our Wednesday morning devotions with you and your teenagers🙌🏽 This is how we do it👇🏽
1. Read the key scripture
2. Write or meditate on what it means to you
3. Pray over your day
Proverbs 3 is filled with godly advice and reassurance like seek God’s Will and he will direct our paths, not to be discouraged when God disciplines cause he disciplines the ones he love, people who embrace wisdom are happy, not to fear the destruction of evil people cause God will protect us, and let us not envy or copy evil people cause the Lord offers friendship to the godly.
All that advice insists that we put our trust in the Lord. We can’t go off of what we think and what we feel cause we are human. Our thoughts change daily, and our feelings and emotions can have us making terrible decisions. BUT GOD! He is all-knowing and worthy of our trust. He’ll never let you down, and even if it feels like he has just know that it’s all apart of his plan for your life 💛
In a tough situation and you don’t know how to feel or what to do? We encourage you to give it God and ask that his will be done! Put your trust in that, and watch how the Lord makes that hard situation a stepping stone on the way to greatness!!
As always, feel free to share your thoughts on today's devotion in the comments.
We're estimating to study the letter of 1 Corinthians for about 8 months! Come on Wednesdays nights to dig deeper on each verse/chapter of this great book. We really want to pursue God and His holiness this 2020! 🙌🏻📖💒 .
You know what every good introvert loves? Cancelled plans. 🙌🏼😆 This morning as I was getting ready for a jam packed day I was just really craving time the Lord. I prayed that He would open up time for me to just sit with him today. By 11:30 am, I was by my fireplace, heels kicked off, this new shirt (my hubby told me would never apply 🤣) on, with the entire rest of the day opened wide up. Thanking God this afternoon for his Word that never changes and for plans that do. 💗
Grace is one of God’s most amazing gifts. It provides us with everything we need to live in perfect freedom: pardon for our sins, healing for our heart, the companionship of God’s indwelling Holy Spirit, and access to freely cultivate our relationship with Him. We work, worship, and enjoy life, surrounded by His unconditional love. His grace upholds us, fills us, and sustains us.
Since we are forgiven people, the Lord responds to us not as enemies but as His dearly loved children (Rom. 8:15; Eph. 5:1). He hears our prayers, speaks to us, and acts on our behalf. The knowledge that we live under the covering of God’s grace gives us...
Security about our position. No one can snatch us out of His hand (John 10:28).
Boldness to live for Christ. Our adequacy comes from the Lord and who we are in Him, so we can live in confidence.
Peace for today because we can fully trust in His sovereignty. The Lord is carrying out His perfect will—and we can be sure that nothing is able to thwart His plan. When we cooperate with Him, we cannot fail.
Hope for the future. This life is just the beginning. One day we will see Jesus face to face, be perfected as the individuals He created us to be, and live with Him in our true home forever.
The Lord is committed to transforming each of us according to His special plan for our lives. Even His correction is an expression of His loving favor (Heb. 12:10). When we falter or fail, we can rest assured that His amazing grace hems us in and always offers us redemption.

It was never meant to be easy and comfortable. That much we are promised. But with all the sorrows that come our way, what a comfort it is to know we can turn to a God who has kept track of 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮 sorrow. No matter how big or small. He has written not one, not a few, but 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮. 𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙡𝙚. 𝙤𝙣𝙚. down in His book. He knows how it hurts and He knows why it hurts. And despite the pain He is always waiting to comfort us. But He doesn’t just keep track of our sorrows, He also collects our tears!? How insanely awesome is that?! To think that somewhere in Heaven, God has a bottle with 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 name on it that has your tears because they are so precious to Him and not a single one goes unnoticed. If you are hurting or going through a tough time or ever thinking no one cares, just remember there is always The One that does. ❤️

Ephesians 5:15,16 “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.”
Procrastination means to put off doing something usually because of carelessness or laziness. Ouch! Well, you might say, I’m not lazy, that’s not me! I work all the time, I am always busy doing something. Well, that doesn’t mean that you put off doing everything – maybe you put off doing things that you don’t really want to do or are difficult. It’s still wrong. It’s still sin. “…to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin” James 4:17.
In order to make the most of every opportunity we must realize that procrastination is not a problem with our calendar, it’s a problem with our heart. We need to ask God’s forgiveness for putting off what we know we are called to do and we need to ask Him to give us a passion to do His will in our lives – from the really big ones to the small acts of kindness that He puts on our hearts. Ecclesiastes 9:10 says, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.” Let’s be diligent to do today what we are called to do.
Lord, forgive me for procrastinating when I have known the good that I ought to do. Help me to make the most of the time that You give me and help me to use my day today as an instrument in Your hands. Amen.

Today's Reading: Exodus 7
Exodus 7:13 (NIV) “Yet Pharaoh’s heart became hard and he would not listen to them, just as the LORD had said. ”
Pharaoh was a stubborn man and God, in His Sovereignty, had full knowledge of it🙏
He knew all along Pharaoh was not going to listen to His command.
He even told Moses in advance Pharaoh wasn’t going to listen.
But because God always extends mercy before He executes judgment, He sent Moses and Aaron back to Pharaoh to tell him again to let God’s people go❤
It took great courage for Moses and Aaron to confront the most powerful man on the planet yet again.
But their hearts were obedient to the Lord.
Even after Pharaoh saw Aaron’s staff swallow up the staffs belonging to the best magicians in Egypt, he would still not admit God’s power was superior💔Pharaoh remained unmoved in his position and stubbornly refused to heed God’s command.
The more Pharaoh suppressed the knowledge of God and refused the will of God, the harder his heart became. (Romans 1:18-21)
When God speaks, people either submit their hearts and obey or they refuse to listen and harden their hearts🌌
Moses and Aaron heard God and obeyed. Even when they had a difficult assignment, they obeyed. Every time they obeyed God they personally witnessed a mighty display of God’s power🌟
Sure, God could have displayed His power without Moses and Aaron but He instructed them to participate, and they obeyed.
As we read the next few chapters of Exodus, we will discover the longer Pharaoh refused to obey God, the more intense God’s judgment became.
There is a stark contrast between Moses’ obedience and Pharaoh’s obstinacy in this chapter.
Are you more like Moses and Aaron or are you more like Pharaoh? Is your heart tender toward the Lord and His commands? Is there some area where He is calling you to obedience? What are you stubbornly refusing to let go of in your life? 🤔
The writer of Hebrews warns us that if we hear God speaking, we should not harden our heart in rebellion. (Hebrews 3:8) Why? 🤔Like Pharaoh, our arrogance will only invite disaster into our lives➕❤
Tonight’s VW Bible Study experience will accomplish two objectives: 1) We will honor the life of Dr. Allen by experiencing 3 of his favorite Scriptures; and 2) We will apply the meaning and power of those Scriptures to our lives. See you tonight! #BibleStudy

YOUR TRIALS HAVE PURPOSE.
Much like a goldsmith heats up the fire under gold to bring impurities to the surface, so the Lord also allows hardships into our lives to expose our strongholds, so He can skim off the lies with His Truth ladle, and set us free. He wants us to be so pure, His reflection is clearly seen. Hebrews 10:14.
Recognize when God is using adverse situations, conflicts, and trials to bring your lies to the surface. Rather than reacting out of those lies as you always have, use the opportunity to seek the Lord for His Truth that sets you free. - From Victory Strategy #61 , "Truth Setup" in these deep devotional Bible studies by Mikaela Vincent for overcoming the enemy in the battlefield of the mind, and walking as one with Christ and others:

I’ve wanted to read the Bible cover to cover for a long time and this weekend I decided to just do it. When I read scripture I need all.the.details. - especially in the Old Testament. This morning I sat in Genesis 9 and 10. My setup looks like this :
I read out of The Jesus Bible for 2 reasons•there’s something about curling up with a hardcover book that fills my soul with joy•I personally like reading through NIV over ESV. I don’t write in this Bible.
I underline and write in the margins of my ESV Journaling Bible.
I use 2 commentaries (1 book, 1 website) to discover all the details of people and places that I need to know to better understand what I’m reading about. This is especially important in chapters such as Genesis 10.
Genesis 10 is a chapter of names. Noah, his 3 sons, and the SEVENTY nations that descended from 2 generations. We learn names of individuals, cities, peoples, and nations.
But why does it matter? Can’t I just skip all these names? I’m not going to remember them anyways.
Idk guys. If God chose this information to be recorded for all of time then I want to understand it.
Where were these nations? Who were these people? Woah, how many different languages were birthed!? Writing these names down, spending time with them, also leaves me with anticipation! What am I going to find out about them later!? How did these nations interact? What were their relationships with God? Who might’ve come from these peoples?
Leave it to God to have 32 verses of names produce excitement for what’s to come!

“Living your life seeking what is good for others brings untold favor, but those who wish evil for others will find it coming back on them.”
Proverbs 11:27 TPT
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
Philippians 4:8 ESV

I rejoice today in the fact that God didn’t give up on me & He has no intention to, even though I fail Him DAILY. I give thanks that He has established a plan + purpose for my life & that His purpose prevails. I’m overwhelmed that when I saw & was consumed by every failure & flaw, He saw the very image of Himself & said it was good.
He fought for me & chased me down until I got tired of running from a call that I knew would require reckless abandon of my own plans & comfort zone. I collapsed empty-handed & tired of striving into His loving arms after learning the hard way that everything else would fail + disappoint me. I surrendered. I told Him that if He could use broken things, that He could use me, whatever it looked like & no matter the cost — & He continues to do just that. So I humble myself. As we’ve been studying the life of John the Baptist at church these past few weeks, I choose to follow the model of his life that says... I WILL DECREASE SO THAT GOD CAN INCREASE. (John 3:30 “He must become greater, I must become less.”)
As I step into this week with another opportunity to proclaim the name of Jesus ( @therefugebydh I’m coming for you in a few days! ) & live out this God dream... I simply ask that my life would continue to be a picture of what He will do with a heart that chooses wholehearted surrender. HIS Kingdom come HIS will be done, for all my days, forever & ever, amen. 🤍
In the Old Testament God promised possessions and physical blessings for those who loved and obeyed the commandments of the Lord. (Deu 11) In the New Testament Jesus promises us His love and to reveal and show himself to us if we love and keep his commandments. (John 14:15,21) He wants to give us access to his very heart and mind... all he asks is for us to love Him and obey His commandments. Obedience to God's Word is necessary, it's the narrow way but it's the Jesus way 🙌
